Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

(11,000+ reviews on the web)
National Park
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya National Park, a mountainous area that has been frozen in time since the greatest recorded eruptions took place nearly 300 years ago. This national park forms the core area of a protected biosphere reserve. Access to the park is strictly regulated to guard its delicate wildlife, with only a few footpaths and a short rustic route you can explore by camel. The admission fee includes a bus tour around the interior of the park, with a narrated history of the area in several languages. Located just outside the northern limits of the park is an informative visitor center, with permanent displays and audio-visual presentations explaining the origins of the island and the volcanic activity that formed the park’s unusual scenery. Make Timanfaya National Park a centerpiece of your Lanzarote vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lanzarote itinerary planner.
